Overview

The Bicycle Book: Wit, Wisdom & Wanderings is a celebration of the bicycle by people who love to ride. It's a tribute to one of the finest, most efficient, useful machines ever invented. It's packed with original stories, narratives and cartoons from a talented corps of writers and artists from around the world. The book features 32 articles and scattered throughout the book is a collection of 43 cartoons from artists whose work has appeared in a wide array of magazines. Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Thomas Hylton, kicks off the collection with "Bicycling and Walking," a sensible, prescriptive editorial on why cycling-friendly communities are winners. On his heels is "Keeping Up With Lance," Scott Roberts' exclusive, one-on-one interview with Chris Carmichael, Lance Armstrong's long time coach and friend. Two prominent names in cycling journalism - Richard Fries, editor of Bike Culture, and Maurice Tierney, publisher of Dirt Rag - comment on the future of bicycling. And that's just the beginning.
